We are closed to the public until further notice

We introduced new Covid-secure rehoming policies and procedures during the last lockdown and found them to be very effective. We will therefore continue to rehome animals virtually by organising video call meet and greets, conducting rehoming applications and assessments over the phone, and delivering companion animals to their new homes via a network of our frontline staff who are designated key workers by the Government in England and Wales. This does mean that rehoming will be restricted to local homes only during the lockdown.

We prefer that you contact us by email at: whdomcen@rspca.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If you are unable to email, you can ring us on 0300 123 0747 during our opening times. 

Further information on how the lockdown in England affects our services is available on the RSPCA website. Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time. It is very much appreciated.


Here at the RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre, most of our animals have been rescued from neglect and bad treatment by their previous owners. 

We look after dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and many other types of small domestic animals - at any one time we could be caring for over 150 animals.We spend weeks, sometimes months, rehabilitating them and preparing them for a new life and a second chance. It costs the RSPCA over £2000  a day to run the West Hatch Animal Centre. The RSPCA relies entirely on kind donations from people like you.

Despite the restrictions, in 2020 we rehomed 63 dogs, 151 cats, 37 rabbits, 11 birds, 31 farm animals, 15 guinea pigs, 58 small mammals and 2 goldfish!

The RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre takes in animals from RSPCA Inspectors only. The demand for spaces for the animals they bring to us is ever increasing and we are therefore unable to accept unwanted pets or stray animals from members of the public. We are able to provide information on centres that can re-home animals for the public on request.
